When woman entrepreneur Ali, discovered a delicious Oregon hybrid blackberry, she immediately fell in love. After experimenting with the fruit for a few years, she came up with her own line of cookies – Marianberry Cookies. The Valentine’s Day Cookie Box includes pink Suzy Shortbreads, heart-cut Marianberry Linzers and a variety of classic biscotti bites, tiny chocolate chip, tiny oatmeal raisin and spiced pumpkin vegan cookies (All pink cookies are colored with fresh beet juice. Don’t worry, they taste the same.) Each white box is wrapped in purple ribbon with pink and white accents. See why Bloomingdale’s Cafes carry these delicious cookies.

Have you ever seen a cupcake that’s good for your waistline? Well, here is one from AJSweetSoap. You may really want to eat it, but you can’t… because it’s made out of soap. Denise Mancuso started making soap 3 years ago out of pieces that are 100% vegan. Her specialty is transforming foods, beverages and desserts into soap. Her craft confused even some of the celebrities at last year’s Emmy Awards when they opened their gift bags and were tempted to take a bite out of AJSweetSoap’s Gelato. Surprise (or trick) your Valentine with Cascades of Love Cupcake Soap or a set of 5 Heart Butter-cream Cookies. Who wouldn’t want to indulge in some guiltless pleasure?
